City Wide Facility Solutions, based in the United States, is now actively seeking international master license partners to work with its team to allow people around the world to access its unique franchise concept through its international master license program.
“Much of our franchise success comes, in part, from our outstanding franchise partners and their ability to use a proven model and business systems to solve problems for clients every single day”
Building upon decades of both franchise and business success, the company is seeking to capitalize on the continued demand for its services globally.
As the largest franchised management company in the building maintenance industry, City Wide has revolutionized the building maintenance industry and manages more than 20 individual maintenance services for commercial clients. The company brings a single point of contact solution to maintaining buildings and facilities of all types and sizes. City Wide franchisees are valued partners that help their clients save time and solve problems associated with managing multiple maintenance vendors.
City Wide is not a janitorial cleaning company. City Wide is a management company in the building maintenance industry and focuses on managing the vendors and provides supervised services. Everything from temporary maintenance labor, janitorial and minor maintenance services to painting, concrete coating and lawn care are managed through City Wide.
A GROWING BUSINESS SERVICES SEGMENT
The global facility management market was a $1.24bn business in 2020. According to Fortune Business Insights, the global market is projected to grow from $1.25bn in 2021 to $1.8bn in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of five per cent during the 2021-2028 period. This growth is attributable to this market’s demand for services, which is expected to surge once the pandemic is over.
This industry, defined as the means of providing maintenance support, user management, and project management, has grown dramatically over the past two decades owing to the continuous global growth in urbanization and industrialization around the world.
It’s this market growth opportunity that has led City Wide to respond by opening its franchise opportunity to partners in select markets globally.
BUILT ON YEARS OF SUCCESS
The company has enjoyed tremendous success through the years by offering a unique solution, superior management systems, and had a franchise service offering designed to delight both facility owners and their tenants.
Its success has come in part from its ability to attract high-caliber individuals to this lower cost, high revenue, and profitable investment model. The investment in this business-to-business service concept is very modest compared to a franchised restaurant concept or franchised high-street retail concept.
It is a highly professional ‘executive’ franchise model in which the business of the franchisee is to provide facility management services and manage the various vendors who provide those services to its clients.
Its team focuses on both business development and client project management. It holds no inventory and doesn’t require a purchase of equipment. However, these are substantial businesses, in which its franchisees generate millions of dollars in franchise unit revenues.
City Wide represents the clients rather than the contractors. Its approach provides a superior outcome to the traditional way the services are managed in facilities. Building owners and property managers can focus on what they do best while partnering with citywide to deliver better results and less time.
Ultimately, City Wide isn’t focused on simply solving a singular problem; rather, it concentrates on truly becoming an extension of its client’s management team.
A FAMILY BUSINESS
The Oddo family, who still run the franchise company today, founded it in Kansas City, Missouri in 1961. City Wide has approximately 70 locations throughout the United States and Canada and systemwide revenues of greater than $400m.
The international expansion initiative of City Wide is in response to the demand for its innovative service offering for around the world. CEO Jeff Oddo stated, “much of our franchise success comes, in part, from our outstanding franchise partners and their ability to use a proven model and business systems to solve problems for clients every single day”.
The company is seeking partners in select markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia where it has received growing interest. Potential partners interested in a master license must have a strong sales, marketing and senior management background and understand what it takes to build a professional sales organization that can consistently deliver a world-class client experience in a global, best-of-class franchise organization.
If you share its passion, meet the qualifications, and have the ability to deliver a high level of customer service while staying dedicated to the company’s values, we invite you to consider City Wide Facilities Solutions as a master license opportunity – the world’s leading and fastest-growing franchised management company in the building maintenance industry.
